    Re: True Detective

    I saw a trailer about this show some time ago. I think I posted it on a new show thread here or something. It's good to know that it's as good as I thought it might be. The problem is that I gave up my HBO after Masters of Sex completed its first season. Is it worth me getting my HBO back? I was thinking I would wait awhile, but by the time Masters of Sex comes back on, it may not be available on HBO On Demand.

    Re: True Detective

    I can't believe there is only one episode left! I can't envision how they are going to wrap up what is going on here in just one hour!!!

    When the new detectives ran into the guy mowing the grass in what looked like the cemetery. He was clearly the same guy who, years before, Cohle saw moving grass at the shut down school. When they showed him this time did he have scars on his lower face? He didn't strike me as unusually tall, but given the odd camera angle and the glare of the sun I wasn't sure what I was supposed to see in that shot.

    ETA: I really like the title sequence to this show. Does HBO have some team that makes sure their shows have great title sequences? I also really like the openings to True Blood and Game of Thrones. Especially in a time where people DVR everything, I think it takes some real attention to detail to put together a title sequence that viewers will actually make a point to watch!

    I'm there too - can't see how they're gonna wrap up things in a single one hour left. Yes it's the same guy at the cemetery. If I recall correctly he had a beard when Cohle talked to him the first time but this time I did not see a beard... but thought I saw scars.

    I'm really REALLY going to miss this show!

    Personally I find these humane mouse traps rather ineffective. Better to lay down some glue and when you hear the critter scream you take a shovel to his head.

    Re: True Detective

    I'm going to hate for this one to end, too. And now I have to rewatch to see if that guy had scars..

    I was paying attention and couldn't decide if he had scars! Come back and tell us what you think!!

    Re: True Detective

    The word is that the show has been renewed and will have a new cast next season. After a few seasons of American Horror Story, I am completely open to this idea. I like having stories that run to a conclusion in a reasonable amount of time instead of being artificially drawn out (I'm looking at you, Once Upon a Time)!

    And The Killing. What a mess that was.

    Glad that they've renewed it, I think it's a really well done series. Can't wait to see how they wrap it up Sunday...for a minute I was thinking Harrelson was the bad guy, but now I don't know.

    What did everyone think of the finale?

    Re: True Detective

    I was really pleased with it. It's so rare these days for a show to actually have a beginning... a middle... and an end... that it felt very very satisfying. I wasn't all that thrilled with the case they were solving/obsessed-with or whatever but to me that was more of a subplot with the relationship between Cohle and Hart being my focal point. From that aspect, I loved the show. Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson are very powerful together. I'd watch MM in anything nowadays (it's his throw-away RomCom's that held no interest for me) though WH is just barely tolerable in my book.

    Pleased that I invested in True Detective

    I thought it was intense but that it was great!

    I absolutely loved this Series!

    Loved watching WH and MM in their roles!

    That Childress was one disgusting and obnoxious gross disgusting creep!

    A real sick piece of crap!
